Much has been written about the Taj Mahal and the immense feelings that visitors get when touring the eternal monument to love. Recently a panel of tourism experts put together a list of what visitors can do to get the most out of their Taj excursion:


Taj Mahal – India’s most visited tourism treasure

  • The Taj Mahal is closed on every Friday in honor of the Muslim Sabbath. Arriving on Fridays is the most common tourism mistake made by tourists visiting the Taj Mahal.

  • Get a professional guide to show you around. The beauty of the Taj Mahal is in the details of its design and architecture so it pays to have someone who can make you appreciate the little intricacies.
  • Rise early and beat the crowds. Sunrise (along with Sunset) is the best time to photograph the Taj Mahal in the various hues of soft light.
  • When arriving for a sunrise visit, be sure to get into the main cenotaph chamber early and hear the “sound of infinity” which is the sounds of the air that moves through the ventilated dome.
  • Expert photographers claim that there are over 300 angles to get unique photos of the Taj Mahal. They however claim visitors should focus on enjoying the monument. To find great locations for the best shots ask either your guides or look at expert photographers with the fancy equipment and follow their trail.
  • The least known unique locations for some great shots of the Taj Mahal include the benches at the Southern end of the complex as well as the Mehtab Bagh (Moonlight Garden),across the Yamuna for some great vantage shots.
